depression, remission, depression

crawled

outta ma blues

just long enough

to lick the sky,

lose myself

in fluffs

of white,

squishing their sweetness

hard

against the roof of my mouth,

feeling the trickle

down the back of my throat

for just a minute,

before

the weight of my thighs

draws me

back down

into my dark ocean

It's good to take a 'bite' out of what is best in life... if only for a moment
